1st SAL.....Peg, Dale and I committed to stitching Anni Downs - A Gardener's Journal in March. I blogged about this on my blog thinking maybe one or 2 others may join us and lots of girls indicated an interest so I decided to start this blog where we can all encourage each other to meet the goals set along the way....March 2010 -March 2011...........
2nd SAL ......well so many of the girls wanted to continue on with another project and some new girls joined us and now approx 91 girls are stitching Natalie Bird's Tis the Season. March to Sept 2011...............
3rd SAL....many girls want to stick with the SAL so now we have moved onto Anni Downs Some Kind of Wonderful - My Favourite Things Quilt.......Oct 2011-Oct 2012.........
Where are we now.....
4th SAL 2013...is numerous smaller projects from the previous 2 books Tis the Season and Some Kind of Wonderful plus some projects from Red Home by Natalie Bird approx 60 ladies stitching together.........

Saw this....


On the 16th July I went to a quilt show by the Schoolhouse Quilters Kenmore. This is their raffle prize. It is a collaborative quilt and beautifully made. The photos are not the best because the quilt was hung up high and I only had my phone. I thought you might like to see it though.

The next question is - if I win this one do I have to finish mine?  Only joking because I wouldn't waste all the work I've done so far.
Enjoy.

Quilting done

It was very exciting to head to my lovely quilter's place to pick up this quilt, Nature's Journey! She has done a wonderful job of the quilting! Now to bind and add a label.

My Journey Finished.


The night before "Girls Day in The Country" with Anni Downs my friend Gail( not in the photo) Kate and myself were trying to get the bind stitched down.  Betty Field from Cowra quilted it for me ...the quilting is so nice.





Ta Da here it is Natures Journey finished.... Thank you Chooky for running the stitch along and thank you all out there in blogland for keeping me motivated. It would not have happened without you all.

Great seeing so many finishes....

I too have completed  including binding....
I am however going to hand quilt this - so that will take some time.
It is as good as finished having been stitched in ditch already!!!!

It was also great to see some of the finished ones in Nundle.
they all look terrific and I am sure Anni loved seeing them all too

Finished - Susan Oh 2 Sew

I had this finished by the end of February, but wanted to keep quiet until after GDITC in Nundle...so here it is all done.
sorry the photo is a bit lop sided ...I'll replace it one day,,,


I had Anni sign the label too.

Thanks everyone who participated in the SAL - and a huge congratulations to the "Champions" and well done to the "Toppers"!
Without the SAL I wouldn't have got it finished.

I'm sure know there are another few tops & quilts ready to be posted...just waiting to update the side bar - so please post!!!
